Acting Naturally was created in September 2006 to teach the technique of acting and performing. The focus is on the method of developing a character for stage or screen. Teaching each student “how to” create their own character based on the script and intuition. Committed to providing outstanding community entertainment through actors and actresses who wish to pursue their dreams in the arts, Acting Naturally holds professional standards and positive experiences for all of their students.
